I don't trust words.
Words and I are not good friends at all.
it's like a baby trying to walk.
than try to help it along with a word.
What has happened to me in the past
and how it has happened...
I don't think that's anyone's business,
except my own.
You just look at the paintings,
see what you can see in the paintings.
That's all you have a right to see.
That's all I will allow you to see.
as good as your own vision of yourself.
Live and die with it.
Because in the end, that's all you have.
Lose it, and you lose yourself
and everything else.
Extraordinary, aren't they?
Drawn by a woman.
- Please take them down.
- Beg your pardon?
You heard me.
Yes, I did, but...
No, I will not take them down.
I am Georgia O'Keeffe,
and these are my drawings...
...and I think that... No, I am sure...
to show them, did you?
- No, I did not ask your permission.
- Well, then you'll have to take them down.
Do you have any idea what you have done
in these pictures?
No, I think you are a revelation.
Well, no one else seems to share
For God's sake, woman.
I've hung your work
next to some of the greatest artists.
...of this or any age...
Picasso, Matisse, Dove, Hartley,
And I've done so because I see in your work
the same raw, intuitive...
...irrational, unconscious, untutored talents
...male or female.
And you, Miss O'Keeffe, have no more right
...than you have to withdraw a child
from the world...
You sure can talk.
In every painting,
there is all of your life coming back at you...
That's just what you see at the end
when the work is finished.
But at the start,
when you look at the empty canvas...
I learned that from Mr. Stieglitz.
Everything I know I learned from him,
- I'll take your bag.
- Thank you.
This is it.
It belongs to my niece, Elizabeth...
...but you'll be welcome to stay
as long as you want.
I work a little in here,
but I don't use that room at all.
Apart from the closet. I use it as a...
I'm sorry. These...
I shouldn't have put these on here.
...but this will be your room.
See, I don't live here.
I live up on Madison with my family, my wife.
- I did mention I had a wife?
So you wouldn't be disturbed here at all.
...so that it didn't conflict
with your creative necessities...
on your permissions.
- it's a very attractive proposition.
- Yeah, it's...
A room of my own in the city of New York.
And all it will cost me
- From my benefactor. Is that the idea?
No, no. I didn't mean...
I didn't mean to imply...
I believe you did.
I'm sorry, Mr. Stieglitz.
I can't help being honest.
- I don't know if it's a fault in my nature.
...or a good thing,
and they're expecting me to return.
- In Texas? Where in Texas?
